City worker suspended following indictment

August 4, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Longtime city parks and recreation worker David P. Ayotte has been suspended without pay following his indictment on felony gambling charges last Friday, officials said.
City Solicitor Michael Marcello said Ayotte would be fired if he is convicted of a felony.
Ayotte, 53, of 634 Old Smithfield Road, North Smithfield, was among 13 individuals arrested by the state police on bookmaking and related charges following a lengthy investigation involving court-authorized phone taps. Ayotte’s wife, Cheryl, 49, was one of them. State police said the group, largely based in the Woonsocket-North Smithfield area, operated a ring that booked $130,000 in sports wagers during some three months leading up to their arrest on Feb. 5, two days after the Super Bowl.
